My wife and I went into the Galerie Alte Meister and the Porzellansammlung. Didn't have time for anything else. The gallery of old masters is said to be one of the finest in Europe, and contained for viewing over three floors.

Zwinger is rightfully rated as the top attraction in Dresden. The palace buildings and grounds have been beautifully restored. The highlight is the porcelain museum, one of the largest in the world.

It is still in construction which made the view of the Zwinger not really good. However, the renovation was nice.

The Barogue buildings surrounding the zwinger are even more beautiful at dusk when they are lit up. We went back the next day and got a feel for the size of the layout. a must see if you visit Dresden.
